    A few bugs and omissions found in a few modules so far - thank you for the heads up on the incorrect code...
    If they are "show stopper" bugs I'll get them fixed and out straightaway, otherwise I'll wait until the end and send on revamped mods all in one go.
    Typical examples:
    hardcoded language define (doh) using a constant when it doesn't yet exist (duh) and so on.

    @fantomen
    Like the instructions said, in the default installation of osCommerce, the shop is loaded in the /catalog sub-directory. This is the 'root' of the shop, NOT the domain. This is typically done so that you may have other functions (ie: a blog, etc) under your domain. For example:
    <your domain> <your domain>/catalog/ <your domain>/<your blog directory> <your domain>/<any other function or directory you want> If you have installed osCommerce in the root directory of your site, just ignore the part of the instructions where it includes the directory path "catalog/", and do the changes in the root directory of your site.

    ArtcoInc reacted to burt in Addon Feedback   
    Coder to "Coder":
    The idea would be to advise the "coder" that he/she has made mistake(s) and to point out what could/should be done in a different way.
    Shopowner to "Coder":
    The idea would be to let other Shopowners know what did not work as expected.
    In other words, keeping things factual so that the "coder" can learn from his errors, fix up code and start to produce better addons.
    That is, surely, a win-win scenario for all;
    the coder
    learns from his mistakes the ones using the code
    if the coder remakes it into a better version future users
    will never have to download code that is not ideal osCommerce
    gets more well coded addons into the Apps area It is certainly not a case of "point and laugh", it is a case of making "coders" aware that they have a basic responsibility to make addons that are not broken from the outset.  How can one learn if constructive feedback is not given ?
    Personal Viewpoint
    I'm probably the coder that has been here the longest - some of my early addons were DIRE - including one that included a hack vector - my knowledge simply was not good enough at the time and I was trying to show off 😕  
    Even today, 20 years later, I make mistakes.  There is a mistake in one of my 28d things that a shopowner noticed - I had not noticed it - I thanked the shopowner for the heads-up and fixed the code, and will send out the renewed file to replace the old.

    Agreed.  I've (and even my family!) has been the target of personal abuse from members of this forum and it sucks.  
    So yes, personal attacks and snide remarks would not be welcomed - from the feedback giver.
    If the OP then resorts to personal attacks and snide remarks, it's another warning sign not to use that addon.
    And I do consider this as a snide remark:
    "if you think you can do better, do it"
    but I maybe in the minority of thinking that?

    This is a great idea. Feed back should address funtionality, compatibility, etc. And not include personal attacks, snide remarks and so on.
    Feedback that goes personal should be removed.
    No drama please, I get that enough in today's politics.

    I have already thought of two more modules for this and started coding. 
    They won't be done in time for release tonight, but I'll make sure they come in the Bonus pack at the end of the 28d.

    I am a re-returning fan of @burts 28 days modules and I like them!
    Easy, functional and all in all understandable and very very reasonable priced!
    Even if I don't need all of them (yet...) I think it is the very least to do supporting his work and his "always striving for a simple but effective solution"
    So now not even half of the 28d over and looking every day what Burt has created to surprise us...
    Keep up the great work and GUYS - in respect to his devotion to the OSC community - give something back 🙂

    Between the lines I read that there is not too much support for the 28d Development from Gary.
    Come on guys! So many people using OSc, not having payed too much for it (probably nothing), and making a good income from it.
    I maybe one day late on this: but *do* support Gary in developing nice OSc features. It's allmost free!

    Bootstrap 3 will be around for years - no point overthinking that, so forget it. 
    The main "problem" will be upgrade php. Some people say php7.2 is working fine, others report it is not working fine.
    At the end of the 28d, dependant on support thereof, I hope to have gotten enough time in hand to get the following done and complete;
    make sure shop and admin are ready for 7.2 (at the very least, possibly 7.3 if I can swing it)
    -> no warnings and no errors product class
    -> rework relevant modules to use it But as with all things, one step at a time, and right now that step is trying to get some time in hand to actually do "stuff".
  15. Thanks

    @René H4
    If you search through the forum, you will find a lot of threads pertaining to PHP v7.2 support. PHP v7.2 is *much* more strict that prior versions, and many people are seeing warnings flag up all over the place. Do note that these are warnings, and not errors.
    AFAIK, 'Frozen' is not 100% compatible with PHP v7.2, and many (if not most) of the add-ons out there are also not 100% compatible. 'Edge' *may* be, but since 'Edge' is constantly changing, it may not be the best choice for a live shop.
    If you wish to deploy 'Frozen', I would suggest that you either roll back to PHP v7.1, or prepare to address any warnings or errors that arise using PHP v7.2. If the latter, you could also contribute back to the community with a list of the errors you find, and your solutions to them.

    IIRC, @burt removed the equal height module in Frozen, having replaced it with a CSS solution.

    null is a special keyword with a special meaning. It does not get quotes around it, nor is it capitalized.
    Some older versions of MySQL may have allowed '' instead of null.

    @fantomen
    You don't want to change the database fields, you want to change the value of the data you are inserting into the fields.
    I think what @MrPhil was suggesting is this:
    INSERT INTO zones (zone_id, zone_country_id, zone_code, zone_name) VALUES ('null',203,'AB','Stockholm')
    1) Back up, back up, back up!
    2) I do not know if the 'null' data needs to be surrounded by single quotes or not. Probably not. You may have to try either or both.
    3) You will have to make this change to all of the records you are inserting into the database.

    Thank You to the handful of good guys who felt able to take a chance on them getting some good modules and code without actually knowing what they'd get.  You are stars.  
    Each day in February I'll be adding in a new module/code. 
    Hit the "FOLLOW" button to be notified whenever I reply to this post.
    Demo site is running Bootstrap v4, but ALL 28d offerings will have BOTH a BSv4 version AND a BSv3 version.  If you are a very old version (eg Gold, or early somewhere in between Gold and Frozen), the BSv3 version is for you, but you'll get both in case you do ever update to the latest codebase.
    If you have general questions, or particular questions about each days offerings ... please post them here or PM me.
